This camp will introduce and reinforce rhythm, note names, sight reading, performance fundamentals for beginners, and practice strategies for experienced students. We will use the interactive “Piano Marvel” software with iPads and have some history activities related the the composers behind the music. The camp will culminate in a recital on the last day. All will be invited (but not required) to perform, and parents are welcome to attend the recital. Classes will be divided between teachers as needed to address fundamental and more advanced theory concepts.
